I’m Jamila, creator of the blog and podcast, Journey To Launch. I’m a wife and mom of two amazing and beautiful young boys and I’m a Certified Financial Education Instructor (CFEI). I was born on the gorgeous island of Jamaica and grew up in the famous borough of Brooklyn (#bkallday).
Raised by a single mom, I learned the concept of hard work and the value of money at a very early age. While my friends were blowing their money on the latest fads (I admit, I sometimes did too), I was saving for my first real estate property, which I was able to buy right out of college, at the age of 22.
The lessons I’ve learned, have allowed me to become savvy in budgeting and all things personal finance. Because of my money habits, my family and I are debt free (besides the mortgage) and are on our way to becoming financially independent by the age of 40 (6 years from now). I love to teach, inspire and help others jumpstart their journey to financial freedom!
Through Journey to Launch, I want to teach you what I’ve learned through a little trial and error and a lot of discipline over the years. My goal is to help you eliminate debt, save more money and increase your net worth.
